Get checked: Having the sensation of something in your throat could be tonsillitis, pharyngitis, strep, mono, a fish bone, a scratch or referred pain from swallowing. Please see your doctor for a full check up.

Hard to say: When a person feels like something is in the throat but they are able to swallow normal size portions of food it's not likely anything is actually blocking or sitting in the esophagus(food tube). Sometimes gastro-esophageal reflux can cause stomach contents to "go backward" up the esophagus and even reach the throat. Should the above symptoms persist see a physician.
